Nose is sweet and malty with some cooked veg and grain. Smells pretty good.

Pours deep copper clear with mild head. Looks pretty good.

Flavor follows nose with solid grain and cooked veg notions. Softly sweet. Mildly spicy - autumn-like spices. Sweetness grows slightly. Soft bitterness. Very soft hops - noble and bittering. Tastes pretty good. Feels pretty good. Good drinkability.

Not bad, pretty good. Kind of unmemorable.

On tap at Flying Saucer Addison

Pours a clear dark orange/copper with a slightly off white that is kinda soapy and falls down to a thin film with good retention.

The aroma is rich in malt character with caramel, toasted bread, toffee and some spicy and herbal hop. The spice and bread come off as rye like which my be in there.

Big bready spicy taste on this. Touch of sweetness with the caramel and toffee.

Clean lager finish. Crisp and medium bodied.

I love this brewery for crafting well made German styles in my home state. This goes towards the top of the list of Oktoberfest biers for me.

Poured into a pint glass at the Flying Saucer

Appearance: Orange-red with a white head about a finger thick which fades into a ring around the side of the glass.

Aroma: Sweet malts, toffee and caramel are the dominate aromas.

Taste: A little too sweet for my liking and not balanced enough. I don’t mind malty beers, but this one is a little too malty and unbalanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and medium body with a sweet finish.

Overall: Pretty typical German Oktoberfest beer, more German than most American versions. I’m not a big fan of mäzen style beers, but this one does match up with the style.
